See above and below great photos from our partner CHF International showing our wells in the Gode and Kelafo zones in Ethiopia! Here is the completed well at Niri The shallow wells’ construction is based on a design incorporating both hydrological engineering best practices and  local preferences. Each well has a one meter high wall around it apron to avoid outside contamination and protect against flooding. Each well also has two watering troughs for livestock. All of the wells are fitted with rope and washer pumps. Everything was constructed using hand held tools and locally-source materials. Each well is monitored by a 12-person Water Management Committee, comprised of community members, half of which are women. We are so happy to see the members of the Hadhawe, Niri, and Waylasidig communities enjoying facilitated access to clean drinking water! *Photographs courtesy of CHF International
